BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Harrison Butker kicked a 24-yard field goal with no time remaining and Georgia Tech rallied from an early deficit and remained unbeaten with a 27-24 victory against Virginia Tech on Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets (4-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 16-10 at halftime and 24-17 entering the fourth quarter, but returned one of Hokies' quarterback Michael Brewer's three interceptions for a touchdown and turned his last one into the drive to Butker's decisive second field goal of the game.

They also got a huge day from their own quarterback, Justin Thomas. He ran 22 times for 165 yards, and completed just 7 of 18 passes, but for 125 yards and the tying touchdown with 2:03 left.

Brewer, a transfer from Texas Tech, has now thrown seven interceptions in his last three games for the Hokies (2-2, 0-1), who were foiled in their bid to start ACC play with a victory.
